Not a bad fit  

You Scored as Percy Shelley

You’re poet is Percy Shelley. Shelley's best-known works include his Prometheus Unbound (1819), a lyrical drama in which Shelley expounds the cause of an imaginative revolution, his atheistic poem Queen Mab (1821), his prose essay A Defence of Poetry (1840) and The Triumph of Life, left unfinished at Shelley's death. Many of Shelley's other works were written around 1820: these include The Mask of Anarchy (1820), the poem 'Ode to the West Wind' (1819), Peter Bell the Third (1819) and the political odes 'To Liberty' and 'To Naples' (both 1820).

I find myself wondering who took the time to write this quiz in the first place. Isn't it miraculous how even such trivialities let us connect with one another? Marvelous.

I realize that I don't know Elia's favorite poet ...

Edited to add: doran_nymeros is good to remind me to include the link to the quiz.

That is a rather interesting way to look at it. I confess, I find these types of quizzes rather pointless.

But what isn't pointless, in the end? And if it's all pointless, then isn't it all meaningful, also?

Though perhaps that means nothing coming from me, I've never been one who could fully embrace the carpe diem attitude. The sentiment seems to come and go, alas.

Anyway, while you'd be quite right to point out that this is nothing more than white noise for the cyber world, Ned, I think it's better than no noise at all. That's the oddest thing about triviality: as much as it wears one down, it's almost worse if it ceased altogether.

I don't know Elia's favorite poet either, come to think of it.

Do you have a link to where one can take this quiz?

Is she fond of poetry? She's always come to my poetry readings, but I think perhaps she's just being polite.

Foolish of me to forget the link, after I saw somewhere else that quizfarm omits it. Strange omission, come to think about it. Here you are.
